For fans of Game of Thrones, Ken Follett, and Clive Cussler: an epic adventure spanning land and sea...time and distance...courage, revenge, and everything in between.
He saw his father executed in battle. He spent his youth avenging that death. And now Henry "Hal" Courtney is a man with a ship - and a family - of his own.
But fate has not finished with Hal. On a voyage along the eastern shore of Africa, a powerful enemy abducts his wife, the fearless warrior Judith...and with her Hal's unborn child. For Hal, a man all too familiar with loss, there is only one way forward: He must track his nemesis across desert and ocean, through the slave markets of Zanzibar and the dangerous waters of the coast, in pursuit of the woman he loves, the child he sired, and the glorious destiny that awaits him.
Bursting with action and suspense, heroism and heartache, this unforgettable novel proves once more that Wilbur Smith is the world's greatest adventure writer.

loved the story gripping to the end. great adventure story and awesome charetors. really enjoyed listening to the audio book
I was really excited about this one at first, believable characters, good adventure story line, excellent narrator, and then it turned into a typical adventure/romance. Still pretty enjoyable, but nothing that stands out.
Not much plot- just a lot of pirates fighting! A love story and predictable kidnapping?
If you have read any of his other books, you now how incredible the story telling is. The author is so good, that it is impossible to turn it off and quit for the night.
Great story...never a dull moment. Lots of twists; very suspenseful. Wonderful characters you can relate to; even in strange places. The narration was so vivid, I could almost cast the characters in my head for an HBO series. I hope they pick up this book.
Hal Courtney. He was simply a good man...uncomplicated.
When Hal's sailors rescued him from the mine fort.
Judith Nazeth. The idea of a capable female heroine in those times is very appealing.
Loved this book.
